Louis van Gaal has reached the stage in his career where he has seemingly just stopped caring about what people think about him. When you have accomplished as much in the sport as he has such a move makes sense.
The result of that has been some increasingly pointed comments about various topics in recent years, with the Dutchman hardly hiding his feelings on a number of different topics.
He launched a strong attack on the decision to host this year's FIFA World Cup in Qatar last week, while he has also made some honest admissions about his time as Manchester United manager.
It is fair to say van Gaal did not exactly enjoy all of his time at Old Trafford, with many of the decisions made at the club rubbing him up the wrong way.
With United now interested in appointing his compatriot Erik ten Hag, van Gaal has warned the Ajax boss has warned to steer well clear of his former club.
Louis van Gaal warns Erik ten Hag off Manchester United move
This is what he had to say this afternoon when asked about the possibility of ten Hag joining the Premier League side.
Erik ten Hag is a great coach, and that is always good for Manchester United. But Manchester United are a commercial club, so it’s a difficult choice for a coach. He’d better go to a football club.
I'm not going to advise him, but he should choose a football club, not a commercial one.
These comments are unlikely to go down well with Manchester United fans, although when you consider how the club has been run over the last decade or so, van Gaal is not far off in his assessment on this occasion.
Despite this, Ten Hag is reported to be keen on the potential switch, with Mauricio Pochettino thought to be the other frontrunner for the position.
